Whether for a party, a family barbecue, a friend’s house, a bar or even for spending the day alone at home, it can be fun to get festive with your Fourth of July look. Since I plan to spend the fourth bathing suit-clad and poolside finishing up an R.L. Stine novel, I figured I would show my enthusiasm for the holiday (and my day off work) by experimenting with patriotic eyeshadow colors.
I picked up both of these Essence eyeshadows for less than a dollar each at my local beauty store and figured that was a steal considering how bright they appeared. While the color intensity was not as vivid as I hoped, even when using a white-based primer, the colors were blendable and definitely worth trying.
I painted the colors on, added a thin line of black eyeliner and a thick coat of mascara and completed the look.
Happy fourth, everybody!
